Today's News

  • Don’t forget: There’s a war going on

    Here in America, we like the news. Our national press generously treats us to salacious details of Prince Harry’s escapade in Las Vegas, or the seemingly endless traffic travails of Lindsay Lohan. We’re at no loss for commentary on Britney Spears’ X-Factor judging style, or endless analysis of LeBron James’ fourth-quarter playing style.

  • Bugling elk a staple of area’s unpredictable September

    September is such an unpredictable month. It is a lovely end of summer with warm sunny days and cool nights. It is gray cold days with scattered showers. It often brings the first snow, which usually melts the next day, as well as our first frost. It wants to be summer, but winter is pushing at the door so hard that it will soon be in, whether we like it or not.

  • Golub, Cougars overpower rival Conifer for Jeffco League win

    CONIFER — Skylar Budd’s game was fairly consistent. But as his match with Evergreen’s Matt Golub went along the Cougars’ No. 1 singles player’s confidence grew. Golub started hitting more ground strokes into the corner. He started taking more chances. And he was getting a lot of winners because of that.
    It all added up to a 6-0, 6-1 win for Golub in Evergreen’s eventual 6-1 team victory Sept. 13 at Conifer High School’s tennis courts.

  • Theil leads Evergreen trio to 4A state tournament

    LITTLETON — It would be easy for the Evergreen Cougars’ glass to be half-full considering Sam Theil, Kyle Peterson and Kyle Malazdrewicz qualified for the 4A boys state golf tournament. But there was also a half-empty feel to the team in the aftermath of the 4A Metro Regionals on Sept. 17 at Raccoon Creek Golf Course.
    Evergreen, a year after qualifying a four-man team to state in 2011, was one shot away from doing it again. But for a second straight year, the Cougars had to settle for third place at regionals behind Valor Christian and Mullen.

  • Skold, Sahli lead Cougars’ pack

    LITTLETON — Sammy Skold sat on the grass just outside of the Evergreen team tent. The discouraging look that crossed her face was undeniable.
    Even though the Evergreen senior placed third at the 35th running of the Liberty Bell Invitational on Sept. 14 at Heritage High School it wasn’t enough. After all, she’d won the race in 2011.

  • Evergreen sign company owner questions park district bid selection

     Zuni Sign owner Ed Bischoff is wondering why his company was not chosen for an Evergreen Park and Recreation District project.

    The Al Lenzi Group of Lakewood will be creating 14 signs for district parks for $64,819. Bischoff’s bid was $64,993 for the project — an amount he says is not a significant difference.

    “My take is that the award was made because of personal preference, and not necessarily what is best for the community,” said Bischoff.

  • Evergreen Fire/Rescue Safety Day is Saturday

    The annual Evergreen Fire/Rescue Safety Day this Saturday, Sept. 22, offers residents information about protecting homes and keeping youngsters safe.

    The event begins at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at Evergreen Fire Station 2 in Bergen Park. King Soopers, Safeway and Village Inn are contributing food for the breakfast, which is available until 11 a.m.

  • Program to offer information on Affordable Health Care Act

    Evergreen resident Kathie Hart is coordinating a program on the Affordable Care Act to help people understand it more clearly.

    “There is a lot of misinformation out there,” Hart said. “I was very concerned that there was so much.”

    To give people a greater understanding of the federal legislation enacted last year, health professionals will discuss aspects of it on Tuesday, Sept. 25, at the Evergreen Fire/Rescue administration building in Bergen Park.
